Walter was of my favorite collections from Spring 2009 fashion week. Walter is the brainchild of Walter Baker, who left his job in finance to become a women’s wear designer in 1991. Walter clothes are self-contradictory in a way that just works: romantic yet edgy, feminine yet cool, demure yet sexy. Perhaps Baker’s seemingly disparate professions are responsible for these delightful incongruities or maybe he just knows what women want to wear. Whatever inspired these pants from the Spring 2009 collection is OK by me.
